Like Monsterbunion, I can only speak to one of the surgeries, tailor bunion, though I had a bunionectomy (no fusion) on the big toe side of the same foot at the same time. I had an osteotomy, cut through the bone, on both also with temporary pins. The big toe side healed faster than the tailor bunion side. I have come to learn that breaks on the fifth metatarsal can be slow to heal.
I will need the same surgeries on my other foot in the future, and will not hesitate to do it when the time comes. I have healed well and was doing aerobics at five months. You will learn a lot from this board, including questions to ask your doctor. Good luck.
